Equileap Gender Equality Indices

(EQUAL Indices)

A Family of Indices (Global, US and Europe) was designed to track leading companies in terms of gender equality, and is used both as benchmarks and underlyings of financial products.
Components are selected based on standard liquidity criteria, a light ESG screening and Equileap’s in-depth gender screening.

• Uniqueness : All existing gender products are only looking at % of women at the board or top positions and most are US only.

• Double impact : Any net profits from the licensing of the Indices and the data will go to the Equileap Foundation, helping women and girls in developing countries.

• Performance: The Indices performs slightly better than their respective benchmarks, with a smart beta added value, the gender equality screening.
